Geocache Description:

Écluse de Champvert

Le Canal Du Nivernais est un canal, courant tout le long du Département de la Nièvre, assurant une bonne navigation même quand les fleuves plus ou moins sauvages comme l'Arron ne sont pas navigable à cause de manque d'eau ou de trop grand courant.

Le terrain est très accidenté, et alors on a besoin de nombreux écluses pour niveller les différences d'altiude.

Ici nous proposons une cache à l'écluse à Champvert, à quelques kilomètres à l'est de Décize, pas seulement une écluse, mais également un carrrefour de randonnées cyclistes.

The Canal Du Nivernais is a major waterway running along the entire Départment de la Nièvre in order to assure a navigable waterway even when the more or less wild rivers like the Arron are not navigable either because of too little water or too strong currents.

The terrain is generally very hilly and therefore, lots of locks are needed to control the water levels.

This cache is located at the locks at Champvert, a few kilometers east of Décize, a place not only interesting for its lock, but also because it is the crossroads of numerous cycling routes.
